5 Spooky Stories to Tell by the Crackling Campfire or Firepit

There are still some fun things you can enjoy even from the comfort of your own RV site. I think we all enjoy some good stories around the campfire from time to time, funny stories, or perhaps scary campfire stories.

No camping trip is complete without a campfire. There are two things that must absolutely be present while huddled around a campfire. Smores and scary campfire stories. Here I have listed my favorite top 5 stories for the whole family and kids.

  1. The Yellow Ribbon

Jenny always wears a yellow ribbon around her neck, and she has never taken it off. Jenny and Johnny fall in love and marry, but Johnny is always curious about the yellow ribbon she never removes. They get older and Jenny becomes ill, he finally discovers the big secret of the yellow ribbon. It completely blows his mind…… and his head.

  1. The Vanishing Hitchhiker
